Re: PRESALE TO NEW YORK AND BROOKLYN NOW

In Brooklyn, does anyone know if the seat numbers in Sec. F3 start from the outside going in, or from the inside going out - so are seats 9 & 10
nearer the outside aisle or the center - the seating plan is no help.

Re: Join Us Next Monday March 26 - new timing

I think it would be a good idea if the moderators put a freeze on new memberships for LeonardCohenFiles before any
pre-order date is fixed. That way people cannot join this site for the sole purpose of getting a leg-up .

Re: Old Ideas + LC's Banjo + Starbucks iTune Pick of the Wee

Yes - the same in my Starbucks this morning - and the CD was playing in the store. Not sure why Banjo was the
Pick of the Week though - there are 9 better songs on the CD.

Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

I believe it is official - #3 in the USA. Can anyone confirm?

Re: LEONARD COHEN HISTORY ON BILLBOARD 200 ALBUMS CHART (U.S

Does anyone know if Billboard takes Amazon sales into account? L.C. has been #1 on Amazon all week, and with so many record stores now closed down it seems that you cannot get a true count without using mail order sources.

Re: LEONARD COHEN HISTORY ON BILLBOARD 200 ALBUMS CHART (U.S

Top 10 on the billboard charts appears a certainty - the article below predicts #7, but their sources do not appear to take Amazon and iTunes into account. Leonard has been #1 on Amazon most of the week. http://www.billboard.com/news/lana-del-rey-leonard-cohen-billboard-top-1006097352-story#/news/la...

Re: U.S. Television Commercial

So after reading the first post I spent two hours last night watching some guy who fixes old fridges and bikes on the History Channel - nothing!! I could have been listening to Old Ideas.

Re: How Would You Rate Old Ideas?

I find that you always have to give Leonard's albums a chance to grow on you. They never sink in on the first or second listening - it's not easy listening pop as we all know, and the sparseness of these offerings make them even more difficult to absorb. I'm taking Old Ideas slowly now. After going ...

Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

At this time it looks like a safe bet that when next week's charts are released Leonard will be no. 2 in the UK (behind Lana Del Ray) and no. 3 in the US (behind Adele and Del Rey). Not too shabby!

Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

Leonard is also #1 right now on Amazon - but it looks as if Amazon is not selling Lana Del Rey because she does not appear.

Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

Old Ideas is now #4 on the Apple iTunes USA sales per the link given above - and #1 in several other countries. If that US ranking carries over from Apple into US sales as a whole, it will be LC's best US chart performance by a mile - I seem to recall that no other album of his has gone above #48 or...

Re: A First?

I found a very condescending and pompous review in a magazine called The Forward - but even it was not wholly negative.
